Olympiques’ Martin Reway named CHL Player of the Week

Press Release

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Montreal Canadiens prospect Martin Reway of the Gatineau Olympiques is the CHL Player of the Week for the week ending November 10 after scoring three goals with six assists for nine points in three games with a plus-minus rating of plus-5.

Reway collected a pair of four-point games helping the Olympiques close out their road trip with two victories to keep pace in the competitive QMJHL standings where they are currently tied for third overall with 32 points.  On Saturday night Reway helped the Olympiques erase a 3-0 third period deficit by scoring twice and adding two assists including one on Emile Poirier’s overtime-winner to claim second star honours lifting his club to a 4-3 comeback win over the Charlottetown Islanders.  The next day Reway earned first star honours with another four-point game, the third of his career, scoring the game-winner plus three assists as part of a 5-4 win over the Moncton Wildcats.  Earlier in the week he picked up an assist despite the 3-1 loss to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Friday night

Reway, an 18-year-old from Prague, Czech Republic, is playing in his second QMJHL season with the Olympiques.  Selected by the Canadiens in the fourth round of the 2013 NHL Draft, Reway has 26 points in 18 games so far this season after finishing the 2012-13 campaign with 50 points in 47 games.

Also considered for the award this week were past winners Mitch Holmberg of the Spokane Chiefs and Michael Dal Colle of the Oshawa Generals.  Both players also tallied nine points last week with Holmberg scoring five goals and four assists in three games, and Dal Colle scoring three goals and six assists in four games.
